Which one item would you stock up on?

Mine would be salted crisps as I don't think I could go long without a serious craving.

I might also have to consider diet coke as I am slightly addicted grin

Yy diet coke

Probably potato actually! (Crisps, chips, jacket, mmmm)

For me, rice.

For DH, soft licorice.

DD would be fine as she loves potatoes & tomatoes, both of which I grow! grin

Well, my one serious food addiction is hummous, but as it has a short fridge life there's no point in stocking up.

So I'll go for Walkers Thai Sweet Chilli crisps, which are seriously moreish.

Crunchy peanut butter

Tea. Almost anything else I could either do without or grow, but I'd have a hard time coping functioning without tea.

You could stock up on the ingredients to make your own hummus grin

Nuts. I had over half my calorie intake today from nuts, and today was not a particularly unusual day.

if you like hummous stock up on tins of chick peas and sesame seeds, grow your own garlic.

I think i would stock up on coffee. I crave lots of unhealthy foods so would benefit from those being rationed. (not sure the rest of the world would though when I get pmt)

Ginger biscuits

Dried chickpeas would take up less space. And lemon juice, for the houmous, unless lemons are going to be off ration for some reason.

Cheese, all sorts

Tea and coffee

Lally112 Thu 07-Aug-14 01:14:48

lamb. I would be miffed if I couldn't get any

ThinkIveBeenHacked Thu 07-Aug-14 01:21:43

Pistacchio nuts
Salt and vinegar pringles

Tea. Vast amounts grin

Pasta to be practical I suppose but to be honest I'd rather have lots of chocolate.

Tea. I live in Canada and already behave as if it's rationed.

Thanks for the suggestions that I could stock up on the ingredients to make my own hummous, but I thought we were only allowed one food item? Or am I taking this too literally?

Am pondering idea of forthcoming armeggedon where we all survive on one food item only. Presumably If we don't die of initial armeggedon, the scurvy will soon finish us off grin

Wine. It's basically fruit. That shit is healthy.
